This theatre was built by an independent Claude Desaulniers against the combined partnership forces of the local Kaplan family, and Premier Operating (Famous Players). When they found that they couldn’t get product to show, Desaulniers sold out to Famous Players and the Kaplan family. This theatre closed not too long ago, and sadly I don’t believe it will ever operate as a theatre again. It is simply not viable!!

The LaSalle Theatre building was constructed more than 80 years ago, in 1938/39, by the Société de cinémas Rousson-Trudeau Ltée. The operating partners were Louis Rousson, Félix Henri Trudeau, J. Hector Trudel and Adélard Lévesque.

Eugène Leblanc was the first manager and operator, assisted by Bill Babcock. Messrs. Girard and Larose were the first ushers, and Laurette Lefebvre, née Danis, was the first cashier.

Rousson-Trudeau Ltée also built and was the first to operate the Cartier Theatre in Timmins.
